Paul loved the DJ scene growing up, so he DJ’d all the school dances in Junior and High School. That love carried him into College where, while taking classes on the weekends, he helped produce and DJ countless EDM events in the mid 90’s. His degree in film allowed him to get more experience behind the camera which he would soon realize was his future. Paul quickly came up with a way to output what he was getting in his camera to the projection screens in the venues and IMAG was born. He spent the next seven years touring around the world as a VJ or visual artist for various artists. As a VJ he was always in the booth with the lighting guys and started learning that trade to make the live visuals more appealing. Paul has worked with every big name in the EDM tour industry over the last 20 years. Paul then moved to Charlotte and was able to help build one of the most respected AV companies in the city. In 2014 he took a step back from being in the venues every day to a management and mentor role. Paul now spends half his time as the mentor and leader of PR PRO and the other half still being creative, designing shows, and running stadium sized lighting rigs. If you have a vision for an event Paul is one that can bring your vision to life. Paul enjoys his days off at the family farm with his wife Jennifer and dog Winter. He still loves gadgets and new technologies and you will find he is always up to date on the current tech trends. Fun Fact– Farmer on the side with 30+ animals.
